I study philosophy, politics and economics at the University of Warwick. I have always been passionate about maths, having achieved an A* in both maths and further maths at GCSE level, and then an A at A-level. I am friendly and patient, and want to help all students achieve the best grade they can!
My teaching methods are flexible, and I am happy to tailor the lessons to fit the needs of each individual student. I believe the best way to learn maths is through practice, so I would provide a series of questions and work through them meticulously ensuring that each individual step in the method is understood. I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your potential.
I am new to teaching, but I am extremely excited to meet the students and start on this exciting journey. I aspire to one day be a teacher, and believe education is the most valuable gift we can give the next generation.

Not taking up maths at A-level put me into a difficult position at Warwick as I struggled to get my head around some topics. Sam generously offered to help and despite most peoples busy schedules at uni, he stuck to his word and didn't bail on me once when we agreed to meet. He is a very reliable and patient person which is important when you're helping somebody learn something new. I am confident Sam would be a perfect tutor for anyone else that requires help for maths.
I met Sam at university and he is a good friend who is polite and friendly and takes his own work very seriously and I think he'll also be a great tutor.
Sam possesses a rare harmony of erudition, intellect, compassion, and responsibility. He is reliable, industrious, and extremely personable. Not only is Sam a gifted mathematician, but he is approachable, friendly, and incredibly humorous. Sam has extensive experience in roles of leadership, and has proven himself, in the many years I have known him, to be trustworthy, efficient and determined in everything he does. I have no doubt that Sam would be a fantastic tutor- he is passionate about learning, he is engaging, and he has has a special ability to explain complex ideas succinctly. Sam is caring, clever, kind, and a joy to be around, and thus I am positive that he will be an outstanding tutor.
Sam is quite a committed student and definetly has academic capabilities that would allow him to tutor others. He's also very friendly and good at interacting with people so he'd most likely do well with making tutees feel at ease. I think he's a rather composed person as well, so he'll be good at explaining points to students even if it means going over them several times.
